0 Flares 0 Flares ×

It’s that time of year again when every website tosses out a gift guide, and we’re going to add to the fray by offering up some gift ideas for Tundra owners and truck owners in general.

First, here’s a list of the coolest gifts you can get your favorite truck owner. This isn’t a list of cheap gifts for truck owners, and it’s not a list of the most popular accessories for the Tundra, but it IS a list of accessories a lot of pickup truck owners would love to have.

Tonneau covers are a very popular way to add 'trunk space' to your truck.

Tonneau covers are a very popular to add "trunk space" to your truck.

1) A Tonneau Cover. Most tonneaus cover and protect the contents of the truck bed while also streamlining the truck’s appearance. Since tonneau covers often come with a locking mechanism, they’re a decent way to add a whole lot of “trunk space” to a pickup truck. While there are too many tonneau options to list, some of the most popular tonneau covers include:

We recommend aFes cold air intake kit.

We recommend aFe's cold air intake kit.

2) A Cold Air Intake Kit. Cold air intakes offer more power, better gas mileage, and they make the engine sound even meaner than it already does. It’s a very cool gift idea for the hot-rod type of truck owner.

We’ve reviewed all the popular cold air intakes including the Volant air intake, the aFe air intake, and the K&N air intake. Of all the kits we’ve reviewed and tested, the kit from aFe was our favorite.

Westin's Platinum Oval Steps are a best-seller.

3) Some step bars. There are thousands of step bars to choose from, but Westin’s Platinum Oval Step Bars are top-sellers on and only $200-$400 per set depending on your truck.

Chrome billet grille before (left) and after (right).

4) A chrome billet grille. We’ve reviewed the Carriage Works billet grille and we have to say it’s a great deal. Less than $150 for a part that really dresses up a pickup.

5) A cat-back exhaust system. If you buy this for your favorite truck owner, we’ll guarantee a HUGE smile on their face. After-market exhaust systems are incredibly popular accessories because they can add power, boost gas mileage, and make a truck sound mean (in an awesome sort of way). Another great gift for a hot-rod truck owner.

We like after market exhaust systems made by Borla, Gibson, Flowmaster, and Magnaflow.

    Definitely a great list of easy accessories to dress up a truck. Anyone know what wheels those are on the Westin step bar pic?

  2. Mickey says:

    Have no idea TXTee. I already have an AFE, S/S stepbars and tonneau cover. I guess now the billet grille.

  3. TXTee says:

    I’m accessorized out too. Bac found out they are ProComp wheels but I already have some KMCs to go on in a few weeks. Midnight Rider can use a nice billet to go with all the halos, etc.

  4. Mickey says:

    You’re right about that. I already painted the grill and was debating painting it again but I think it’s time for the billet to come out.

  5. TXTee – Sorry – no idea.
